Back to Blighty

The Jesus Lizard spent the weekend rehearsing in Nashville.  We’ll fly to London today, rehearse Thursday and Friday, and head out to ATP for shows Saturday and Sunday.  Monday, we play the Forum in London with the Grails and Harvey Milk.  Man, I hope this works.

The Fans Strike Back

After the Forum show, Hasi and I are going to stay in London a few days for touristy stuff like, oh, I don’t know, the Viz Comics exhibit at the Tate Modern.

    I am ridiculously excited about the Forum show, and gutted I can’t go to ATP.

    Good luck!

  3. Matt says:

    Have fun with the Brits! And get some Aussie shows organised!

    Diablo: if you’re about at ATP, head to the Reds Stage for 2.45 on Saturday as I’ll be fighting the time of day in an effort to play rock music some 8 hours before you guys do…

    Guys, an awesome gig last night. Thanks so much for playing Blockbuster and also for the inspiration you’ve given me over the last 15 years. Without you I wouldn’t have joined a band and learned to love rock and roll.

    A sweat-drenched, beaming, thank you.

  8. Dan says:

    Thanks for three unbelievably good shows.

    It was like the four of you never went away.

    Definitely worth the 24 hour flight each way.

    See you at Pitchfork in July.
